Museum offers old-fashioned holiday fun

Youngsters gather around the Christmas tree to hear Santa Claus tell a timely story at the Langley Centennial Museum’s annual party.

‘Twas a few weeks before Christmas and good girls and boys were at the Museum playing with old fashioned toys.

The Langley Centennial Museum in Fort Langley is presenting its annual Pioneer Christmas, and families are encouraged to enjoy festive activities and explore holiday traditions from days gone by.

From 1 – 3pm on Saturday, December 3, visitors will be able to decorate gingerbread cookies, try their hand at traditional and pioneer crafts, explore the Museum’s decorated galleries, and listen to a reading of ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas. A children’s colouring contest will be held, and little ones can play with pioneer toys and get their photos taken with jolly old St. Nick. As well, each child will receive a surprise gift.

The cost is $5 per family of four and pre-registration is recommended. For more information or to register, contact the Museum at 604.532.3536 or email lforestell@tol.ca.

Langley Centennial Museum is located in Fort Langley at 9135 King Street. Visit langleymuseum.org
